12 Christmas gifts we’re wishing for this year
BEAUTYcrew Beauty & Social Editor / November 29 2023
We've well and truly gone all out this Christmas. The tree is up, our beauty advent calendars are being unboxed each day, and you best believe we've got our signature Christmas candle burning. It's basically Whoville in our homes.
And, of course, we've sent out a Christmas wishlist to our nearest and dearest that's full of must-have beauty items (to our potential Secret Santa: we apologise in advance).
So before you crack open a Christmas cracker for Friendsmas, send this wishlist to your mates to drop a hint for what you'd most like to see underneath the tree...
Santa Maria Novella Gelsomino
Floral scents are a forever favourite for us, and Santa Maria Novella's Gelsomino perfume is the hyper-feminine scent of our dreams. It's green and floral without being overly powdery, and lingers on the skin for hours after spritzing. Plus, the packaging is just as enchanting as the scent itself.
$425 at Libertine Parfumerie
Elemis ULTRA SMART Pro-Collagen Night Genius
Okay Santa, hear us out. She may have a hefty price tag but the results of this overnight moisturiser are seriously unmatched. It's the closest thing to magic we've seen, working to make fine lines vanish and leave you with a dewy, cloud-like complexion that oozes radiance.
$480 at Elemis
FOREO BEAR Mini Facial Toning Device in ‘Lavender’
We plan on letting loose during the silly season, but we’re not planning on letting our faces show any signs of our fun-filled evenings. This facial toning device is a favourite of celebs like Madelaine Petsch and Dove Cameron. It utilises T-sonic pulsations to effectively lift, tone and contour the muscles in the face and neck for your most youthful appearance yet.
$233.40 at Amazon
Dyson Airwrap Complete Long in 'Ceramic Pop'
Most of the year we’re scouring the web for Dyson Airwrap dupes, but given it’s Christmas, we think it’s the perfect time to treat ourselves to the real thing. This new pastel blue, pink and orange colourway (with six attachment heads) will make a pretty addition to your bathroom countertop.
$949 at Dyson
Goldie Red Matte Lipstick Gift Set (Holiday Limited Edition)
'Tis the season for a red lip. And whilst we're still playing guesses as to which shade of red lipstick Taylor Swift reaches for, odds are that Gucci's 'Goldie Red' is amongst her makeup staples. This gift set features three variations of the iconic hue – matte, satin and sheer – so you'll have one on hand for every occasion.
$216 at Sephora
Holme Beauty Bronze Bag
Summer is all about a bronzed goddess glow. And this gift set has everything you need to create the bronzy look of your dreams. The primer duo has got your base covered (literally), whilst the Embodiment Blush adds the most gorgeous natural flush. And is that a D-Bronzi dupe we spy? Yeah, we're gonna need a few of those...
$163 at Holme Beauty
Charlotte Tilbury The Beautyverse Palette
Have you ever seen a prettier palette? The packaging is other-worldly, but it's the nine ultra-pigmented shades of gold, lilac, neutrals and silver that truly seal the deal. In true CT fashion, the palette is extremely versatile, offering limitless looks to get you through party season and beyond.
$120 at Charlotte Tilbury
Sisley Paris Black Rose Skin Infusion Cream Collection
We've got boujee taste, we know. But this heavenly face and eye cream collection is worth every cent. Each product is luxury in a jar, formulated with rose, magnolia and geranium to awaken the senses and transform your skin.
$290 at Sisley
Sol de Janeiro Bum Bum Body Obsession
Like everyone else on TikTok, this brand has us in a chokehold and the BumBum Body Obsession collection is a need not a want. It comes with a full-sized cream as well as a travel-friendly body mist, shower gel, body scrub and body oil that'll leave you smelling like a tropical vacay. Chances are this is all over your FYP and we're guessing it won't stay on shelves long...
$117 at MECCA
K18 Next Level Repair Trio
Every glow-up starts with a hair transformation. And K18's power-players are the key to your strongest, shiniest, healthiest hair yet. This trio features the viral K18 Bond Repair Mask, Detox Shampoo and Molecular Repair Oil (an Alix Earle staple) to level-up your hair wash routine and take your locks from rat-girl to Rapunzel.
$159 at Sephora
FRESH Soy Face Cleanser
The holy grail of cleansers is now available in a pump pack and you best believe we're stocking up. This cleanser truly is that girl, working to remove makeup and impurities and deeply cleanse your complexion, all while maintaining the skin’s pH and hydrating to the gods.
$107 at Sephora
Frank Body Cheek To Cheek Kit
This cheeky body scrub and face mask duo from Frank Body is the perfect stocking stuffer (spoiler alert: we've bought one for all our besties). The scrub is our go-to for tan prep and we're yet to come across a more affordable and hard-working face mask than the Glow Mask. A power couple set to rival Taylor and Travis.
